The Green Party has taken the Kenilworth Park Hill Ward at the Warwickshire County Council elections today, meaning that the Conservatives no longer control all three Kenilworth seats.
The Conservative party had held all three Kenilworth seats at county level following the 2017 election.
Tracey Drew received 1,983 votes for the Greens in Park Hill, beating Conservative candidate Andy Metcalf who took 1,153.
The Conservatives did however retain both the Lapworth and West Kenilworth, and Kenilworth St John's seats.
John Cooke was re-elected for Lapworth and West Kenilworth - he first took the seat in 2017.
Richard Spencer has been elected for the first time today, taking the Kenilworth St John's seat for the Conservatives.
